“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

As other posters have said the hotel is a short walk from the town centre.

The apartments are a decent size with a kitchenette, sitting area, bathroom and bedroom.

The kitchen has a hob, fridge, microwave and coffee maker.

Staff were helpful and welcoming,

Secure parking available

The hotel is a little way from the centre but fine if you don't mind a short walk. The rooms are really nice and spacious. They have secure underground parking which is also quite spacious, particularly by Belgian hotel standards (I have damaged my car before in an extremely confined Belgian hotel car park). Great buffet breakfast and very nice helpful staff. We would stay there again without hesitation.

We drove to the hotel and found good secure parking. The front desk gentleman was a wealth of knowledge and guided us to several attractions on our "to see" list. Everything was in walking distance and the walk was beautiful. Being senior citizens we felt secure at the hotel and throughout the city. It was a beautiful stop on our trip and we would like to return.Ghent reminded us a lot of a previous trip to Amsterdam. Hotel had a good restaurant and bar on-site.Rates were very reasonable and a good selection.

Excellent apartment very high class service excellent ghent a beautiful city would highly recommend this accomodation. The Hotel is about 15 minutes walk to the centre but the accomodation is so good itts worth the walk. Try the restaurants by the Catherdral especially the chicken stew! Also we did a river tour which was really interesting.

We spent 3 nights a the Castelnou while using Ghent as a base to explore Belgium. Our suite was spotless and well equipped. We had a bathroom with a shower/bath, living room/dining room with a kitchenette and bedroom. We faced the back of the hotel and in the distance you could see the tower of the old town. It was unbelievably quiet and we slept very well. Parking in the underground was money well spent and we had a designated spot to come home to everyday. It's about a 10 - 15 minute to the old town and it's quite a lovely walk. You are spoiled for choice in terms of restaurants in the old town and we enjoyed a different one every night.

The hotel breakfast is adequate as others have remarked, but at least they had coffee, fruit, eggs, bacon, bread and pastries to choose from.

The staff at the front desk were very helpful and gave us some great tips about enjoying the town. I would recommend this aparthotel to anyone - its a great alternative to a hotel, more space and less money. Why would you stay in a hotel?

We stayed at this apart/hotel recently and it turned out to be the perfect choice at a reasonable rate.

Unlike some other hotels we were able to reserve secure car parking in advance, and if the garage was full then the hotel would say so. The entrance to the garage was situated on the right hand side of the street just before the hotel sign.

The girl on the front desk was very helpful and pleasant. One thing I did notice though, was that the reception desk closed in the evening which was a bit daunting for anyone arriving to check- in the evening. During these times the staff in the hotel restaurant take over.

The room we had was very clean and modern and the advertised photos were a precise reflection. If you are looking for somewhere plush then this probably won't suit you, but it is good in it"s own way.
The small kitchenette area was very handy for us as a family with all the basic equipment. The beds were comfortable and we all slept fine.

Breakfast is served in the restaurant downstairs and is adequate - we took our breakfast to our room to eat.

The only food we ate in the restaurant was a bread and cheese platter- White sliced bread with cheese square slices -

There didn't appear to be any shops or restaurants near the hotel and the walk into town takes about 15 min - quite a walk for small children buggy advisable. There is a small playground and park 5 min from the hotel and you will notice this as you walk into town.


Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Very comfortable bedroom plus (very well equipped) kitchen/sitting room makes it ideal for people spending a few days in Gent who don't want to eat out all the time. Spotlessly clean and very spacious. The bathroom is a 'wet room', which is nice in one way but makes for slippery floors....and breakfast isn't up to much. In an interesting part of town and 15 mins' walk into the centre.
